CHICAGO — Increase in tuition at Illinois Institute of 
Technology from a present figure of $1,600 to $1,800 for the 
academic year beginning in September 1968 was announced today 
by Dr. John T. Rettaliata, IIT president. The new figure represents 
a $100 increase per semester. The university's last tuition increase 
was made in 1966. 

Since 1960, the IIT educational budgets have increased from 
$7.6 million to $16.5 million, Dr„ Rettaliata said. During this 
period IIT's instructional salary budget has risen 98 per cent and 
the number of full-time faculty members has increased from 193 to 
288. IIT is currently recognized by the Association of American 
University Professors among "institutions which did outstandingly 
well in their average or minimum compensation grades or both." Of 
the 918 institutions throughout the nation reporting in 1966-67, the 
AAUP listed only 63 having faculty compensation grades higher than IIT, 
In order to maintain and improve this standard, Dr. Rettaliata said, 
a share of the increasing costs must be supported through tuition 
charges.

ADD 1 — Tuition Increase 

The university will provide additional financial assistance 
to qualified students who need it, Dr. Rettaliata said. Since 
1960, annual aid to I IT students has increased from $850,000 to 
nearly $3,000,000. Much of this increase has been made possible 
through gifts and grants. The university has also greatly 
expanded and improved its physical facilities. This expansion has 
largely been made possible by gift support obtained through a 
major fund-raising campaign that is still in progress. 

In authorizing the new tuition rate, the IIT board of trustees 
specified that no further increase shall be made for at least two 
years.

CHICAGO -- Illinois Institute of Technology intercollegiate athletic 
teams ended the pre-holiday season with an 8-7 record in wrestling, 
swimming and basketball. 

In two matches the wrestling team trounced Elmhurst College 36 to 2 
ind won easily over St, Joseph College 22 to 11. 

The swimming team also had a winning start with a 4 and 2 record, 
rhe IIT Techawks won their first two meets over Amundsen College 56 to 30 
md Elgin College 55 to 49. They then swamped Milwaukee Institute of 
rechnology 51 to 27 before losing to Wheaton College 65 to 25. In the 
Following meet Rockford College came out on top of IIT with a 63 to 40 
score. In the final pre-Christmas contest Wilson College was beaten 55 
to 44. 

The basketball team opened the season sensationally at Homecoming 
vith victories over Roosevelt University 70 to 49 and the University of 
Dubuque the following night in a close contest by the score of 79 to 72. 
rhe Techawks then dropped five straight as injuries and sickness thinned 
their ranks. Heaviest blow was a pulled tendon in the foot of their top- 
scoring co-captain, Rick Klein. 

The first of these losing contests was a 74 to 67 deficit to Northeaster 
Illinois College, Then the team dropped even a closer game in overtime to 
3t . Procopius College by the score of 86 to 83. In the last three games the 
rechawks lost to North Park College 85 to 67, Lewis College 84 to 63, and

CHICAGO -- In recognition of the scientific contributions of Doctors 
Ragnar and Else Holm to the physics of electric contact phenomena, the 
annual seminars dealing with this subject will henceforth be known as 
"The Holm Seminars on Electric Contact Phenomena," according to Dr. 
Ralph E. Armington, seminar chairman. Dr. Armington is a lecturer in 
electrical engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology which 
co-sponsors the seminars with IIT Research Institute. 

In making the announcement, Dr. Armington said the seminar program 
committee wanted to honor the pioneer of electrical contact phenomena 
investigation and his wife for "their scientific endeavors, their 
leadership, their encouragement for better scientific work, and their 
unfailing good humor." 

The proposal to so name the scientific meetings was made at the 
Engineering Seminar on Electric Contact Phenomena last November at the 
Sherman House in Chicago. The resolution was passed unanimously by 
over two-hundred attendees. 



ADD 1 — Holas Honored 

Dr. R. Holm, who received his PH.D. in Physics from the University 
of Uppsala, Sweden, in 1908, began his investigations into electric contact 
phenomena during World War I when he worked on telephone circuits and 
microphones for the Siemens-Werke in Berlin. He formulated a theory of 
contacts by creating concepts such as real contact surface and the 
relation between contact temperature and voltage . His paper on this 
subject, presented to the Danish Academy of Sciences, was awarded the 
Classen Prize in 1921. 

After lecturing in Sweden for several years, he again worked for 
Siemens in Berlin from 1927 to 1945, concentrating on the theory of 
electric contacts and. on arcs in high duty switches. His principal 
studies include the fundamentals of the tunnel effect applied to contacts, 
material transfer, fritting of films in contacts, and sliding contact 
processes . 

In 1927 he married Dr. Else Koch of Breslau, Germany, who received 
her Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Berlin in 1923. She had been 
working for Dr. R. Holm as a research assistant in the Siemens' laboratories 
but, he says, since their marriage "he has been working for her." She 
has published numerous articles in the general field of contacts. 

In 1947 the Holms came to the United States, of which they are now 
citizens, and joined the Stackpole Carbon Company in St. Mary's, Pa. 
Although presently retired, they both continue to act as consultants to 
the company. Recently, they both worked on a completely revised fourth 
edition of Electrical Contacts Theory and Application , which is the 
industry's handbook on electrical contact. This latest edition was 
published in 1967.

CHICAGO - The establishment of a school of architecture and pi arming 
it Illinois Institute of Technology was announced today by Dr. John T. 
lettaliata, president. 

At the same time he named Mr. George Danforth as director of the 
:chool consisting of the departments of architecture and of city and 
'egional planning. Danforth will also continue to act as chairman of 
;he department of architecture. Mr. Paul A. Thomas is chairman of the 
lepartment of city and regional planning. 

In making the announcement, Dr. Rettaliata said that the school 
'administratively formalizes the close interrelationship between designing 
>uildings and planning their location within a physical environment." 

Danforth, the new director, pointed out that an intimate relationship 
tetween the two departments has existed since 1938 when Ludwig Mies van 
ler Rohe, the world-famous architect, and the late Ludwig K. Hilberseimer , 
•ioneer in city and regional planning, joined the faculty of Armour 
institute of Technology, one of IIT's predecessor institutions. At that 
;ime they developed and introduced the first curricula integrating the 
;wo disciplines and emphasized fundamentals rather than individual styles 
n building design. 

-more- 



DD 2 - School of Architecture and Planning 

Currently there are 223 undergraduate and approximately 25 graduate 
students in the department of architecture. There are 28 graduates in 
;he department of city and regional planning, which also provides courses 
;o over 100 undergraduate students from other departments at I IT. 

Last year the American Institute of Architects awarded Danforth the 
lonor of fellowship and membership in its College of Fellows. He was 
lamed for his notable contribution to the advancement of the architectural 
)rofession in educational service. A native of LaHarpe , Kansas, he became

CHICAGO -- A two-year $90,000 grant to Illinois Institute of Technology 
for study of the basic mechanism of energy transformation in muscle was 
announced today by Dr. Arthur Grad, Dean of the I IT Graduate School. 

The grant was made by the National Science Foundation to support 
research by Professor Teru Hayashi, chairman of the department of biology 
a.nd internationally recognized authority on the physiology of cell movement, 
rhe title of the program is "The Interaction of Actin and Myosin in the 
Contractile Reaction." 

According to Professor Hayashi, there are four known proteins involved 
in the transformation of chemical energy to mechanical energy during muscle 
Dontraction. "If we can develop a theoretical understanding of the functions 
Df these components," he said, "we believe we will have an insight into 
a.11 living processes relevant to energy transformations.-' 

To achieve this understanding Professor Hayashi plans to isolate the 
protein components, synthetically reconstruct them, and then study their 
interactions. He said the laboratory at IIT is unique in its facilities 
for studying the contractability of these proteins. The laboratory and the 
lepartment of biology are housed in IIT's new $3.2 million Life Sciences 
Building .

ADD 1 



Professor Hayashi stated: "One of the fundamental properties of 
living things is movement. In higher forms this is brought about by the 
activity of muscles; but in lower forms, movement is achieved by the 
activities of cells. At the molecular level there is some evidence that 
all types of movement have a common basis. 

"Our knowledge of movement at the molecular level," he said, "has 
been primarily developed by studies of contractile proteins, actin and 
myosin. These two proteins must interact in some unknown way in order to 
achieve the transformation of chemical energy into kinetic energy. My 
laboratory at IIT will be concerned first with the characterization of the 
protein actin, and secondly with the interactions of actin and myosin. 
Movement in the test tube has already been achieved, and it is with the 
hope of unraveling the detailed reactions and energetics of this movement 
that the research will be conducted. 

"The understanding of muscle activity at the molecular level," 
Professor Hayashi said, "will lead to the possibility of elucidating the 
synthesis of these proteins in the muscle during the course of embryonic 
development. This, in turn, can lead to our understanding of muscle 
function in common diseases such as muscular dystrophy and the degeneration 
of muscle with the failure of nerve function, as well as the increase in 
size and efficiency of muscle function with use and exercise." 



ADD 2 



Professor Hayashi, a native of Atlantic City, N. J., joined the 
faculty of Columbia University in 1946, after having taught and conducted 
research in zoology at the University of Missouri and having been an 
instructor in physics for the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II. 
He headed the Columbia department of zoology from 1963 until 1967 when 
he joined the IIT faculty. He is the author or co-author of approximately 
forty technical papers in the field of cell physiology, and has been the 
recipient of Guggenheim and Fulbright fellowships. 

He is a past president of the Society of General Physiologists, a 
member of the National Research Council, a trustee of the Marine Biological 
Laboratory, and an honorary member of Phi Beta Kappa. He received his 
bachelor of science degree from Ursinus College in Pennsylvania and did 
graduate work at the University of Pennsylvania and at the University 
of Missouri. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Missouri in 
1943.

CHICAGO -- A one-year $50,000 grant from the National Space and 
sronautics Administration to Illinois Institute of Technology for the 
:udy of rocket propellant evaporation and spray break up was announced 
)day by Dr. Arthur Grad , dean of the graduate school. 

The grant is an extention of a 31-month experimental and analytical 
"ogram, under the direction of Professor T. Paul Torda, that has shown 
lat the mathematical model now employed to design rocket engine combustion 
lambers and injectors is not valid. Professor Torda pointed out that 
lis old model is based on extrapolations of evaporation dynamics at 
:mospheric pressures. 

"When environmental pressures simulate rocket combustion conditions," 
i said, "we've discovered that the evaporation characteristics of fuel 
'oplets are radically changed." 

The experimental study, carried out by Professor Torda and graduate 
;ud.ent Robert Matlosz, indicates that rocket engine combustion chambers 
in be smaller without sacrificing thrust. This suggests a rocket could 
-ft a larger pay load, would, be more maneuverable , and would be more 
;onomical . 

-more- 



iD 1 - Propellant Study 

The objectives of the current project, entitled "Liquid Droplet 
aporation in High Pressure and High Temperature Environment," is to 
velop a theoretical understanding of fuel evaporation under rocket 
mbustion conditions as well as insights into rocket combustion 
stability. 

The first report on this project concludes: "Since the experimental 
dius-time and temperature-time histories for the vaporizing droplet 

not agree with the recommended quasi-steady (heat-mass transfer analogy) 
porization theory, it is imperative to carry out a non-steady droplet 
porization analysis beginning with the equations of conservation of 
ergy, momentum, mass, and species." 

Professor Torda is now developing an analytical model of drop 
porization dynamics for parafin fuels. Some of his students are also 
rently studying cryogenic fuels. 

In order to study vaporization phenomena, a hot gas tunnel was built 
to which drops are inserted by an accoustically excited injector that 
oduces droplet specimens of desired size and frequency. The drops are 
en photographed with a high speed Fastax camera and studied to determine 
e dynamics of their behavior under high temperature and high pressure 
nditions .

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 



May 3, 1968 



CHICAGO — A dozen students at Illinois Institute of Technology are 
currently tutoring underprivileged children between the third and fifth 
grades from south side grammar schools. 

Seven of the student tutors are members of the Circle K International 
Club, which initiated the program and is affiliated with the International 
Kiwanis Association. The other five are independent volunteers. 

Mike Mowrer, project chairman for Circle K, said the program is 
conducted to develop a better relationship between IIT and the surrounding 
area as well as fulfill the ideals and objectives of the student 
organization which is sponsored by the Roseland Kiwanis Club. 

In commenting on the program, Mowrer said he believed, the most 
important aspect was not assistance for students having academic problems, 
rather it was "the development of a close personal relationship and the 
demonstration of an interest in the local community by IIT students." 

The program was launched in November, 1966 in coordination with the 
program of the Office of Economic Opportunity in the Henry Booth Extension 
at 29th and State Streets. Thru this contact IIT students obtained 
referrals of school principals in the surrounding neighborhood schools. 
Upon teacher recommendations and. parents approval, the names of students 
to be tutored are submitted to the Henry Booth Extension office.

The program is set up so that the student-tutor ratio is maintained 
t 1 to 1 . In some cases the tutors give time and effort to more than 
ne student. Only one student, however, is tutored at one time. This is 
o provide a more personal involvement and relation between each student 
rid tutor. 

Originally the tutoring took place in rooms provided by the Henry 
ooth Extension. However, because of a cut in federal funds for the 
overty program, the rooms were not available during the past year. The 
pace problem was solved by tutors going to the students' homes. 

According to the plans of the program, at the first meeting, the 
tudent and tutor meet and become acquainted. At the second, meeting, 
he tutoring begins. These sessions are held one day a week, except on 
aturday and Sunday, for one hour, 3:30-4:30. The sessions may be held 
ore often if the student and tutor wish. The tutoring continues every 
eek of classes (16 weeks) during the school term until the last week, 
t that time, a small party is held for the students and. tutors. The 
lub buys the pop while the students' mothers bake cakes for the party.

CHICAGO — Advances in the understanding of the resistance of 
Clostridium botulinum to heat and radiation will be presented next 
week at the 68th Annual Meeting of the American Society for 
Microbiology in Detroit between May 5 and 10. The new knowledge 
will be presented in 10 papers authored by graduate students from 
Illinois Institute of Technology and Dr. Nicholas Grecz, IIT 
professor of biology. 

According to Professor Grecz, he and his students have found 
that a common metal (calcium) and a rare compound (dipicolinic 
acid) interact with components of the Clostridium botulinum spore 
to produce a cementatious material which protects the organism 
against heat. Professor Grecz's objective is to accurately define 
this mechanism. Six of the papers deal with studies of both heat 
and radiation resistance. Professor Grecz believes that food 
preservation by a combination of heat and radiation processing 
may enable the food industry to eliminate all possibility of 
botulism poisoning in their products.

Professor Grecz's students come from Europe, Asia and America, 
They are: Egon Durban (doctoral candidate) from Germany and Dr. 
Gerda Suchanek from Austria; Wei Lie Tjoa (master's candidate) 
from Indonesia; Toshiyuki Miura (doctoral candidate) from Japan; 
Terry Tang (doctoral candidate) and Hilda Kung Lo (master's 
candidate) from the Republic of China; Larkshman R. Sehgal 
(doctoral candidate) and Dr. J. Upadhyay from India; and Prof. E. 
James Kennedy and Ronald Booth (doctoral candidate) from the 
United States. 

The research program has been sponsored at I IT since 1963 by 
the U.S. Public Health Service with annual grants averaging about 
$90,000.

active in the affairs of that organization, including participation in 
inter-fraternity football and softball 3

Rick, a junior at IIT majoring in marketing was nominated for the 
award by his varsity basketball coach, Ed Glancy. Co-captain of the 
basketball team this past season, and newly elected co-captain for the 
1968-69 season, Rick finished his third year of play with a 24.5 per 
game scoring average. His average was highest among all college and 
university players in Illinois. 

A 6' 6' forward, Rick also led the team this year in rebounding, 
averaging 10.6 rebounds in each of his ninteen games. He has lettered 
in basketball in each of his three seasons at IIT, and this year was 
named alternate to the Peoria Star Journal Illinois college all-star 
team.

pitcher and infielder on the IIT baseball team. Named captain of next 
year's baseball team, Rick this season batted .327, and posted a 2-0 
pitching mark, including a 1-hit shutout victory. 

Nominations for athlete of the year were given to Honor I, IIT 
athletic honorary fraternity, by the coaches of four of IIT"s seven 
varsity sports. The members of Honor I cast ballots to select a single 
winner from among the four candidates, however, a tie vote resulted, and 
it was decided dual awards would be presented. 

Both George and Rick are members and past presidents of Honor I. 

The Athlete of the Year Award was instituted by Honor I last year. 
First recipient of the award was Thomas Kincaid, winner of seven major 
letters at IIT as a varsity wrestler and starting catcher on the base- 
ball team.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 



June 21, 1968 



CHICAGO — Chicago's fourth Vocational Guidance Institute under Plans 
for Progress opens June 24, 1968, for the analysis and study of youth em- 
Dloyment problems. 

The four-week Institute is given by Illinois Institute of Technology, 
Department of Psychology and Education, from June 24 through July 18. It 
Is presented with the cooperation of the Chicago Association of Commerce 
ind Industry under Mr. William H, Burhans, Director of Health, Education, 
md Welfare. Chicago-area companies are sponsoring and supporting the 
[nstitute with the financial assistance of Plans for Progress in Washing- 
ton, D,,C 

Dr. Charles S. Dewey, associate professor of psychology a i IIT and 
director of the Institute, said the course is open to selected counselors 
Ln public schools, parochial schools, and community agencies, a total of 
fifty-five participants. They will receive college credit for their par- 
ticipation. The Institute will consist of field trips to Chicago-area 
companies to learn firsthand about the employment problems and possibili- 
ties for work for youth, particularly dropouts, minority groups, and those 
vith low skills. The counselors will also meet on the campus for seminars 
vith experts in the field, for the analysis of their findings, and for 
planning on the use of their new information in their work with young 
people 



dd 1 



Many counselors never have the opportunity to observe actual industrial 
nd business working situations, Dr. Dewey explained. After visiting the 
arious companies and discussing employment needs and. requirements, the 
ounselors are better equipped to guide their students toward successful 
ntry into the world of work, 

The Institute is a design for community action to assist in meeting 
ead. on the employment problems of youth in the Chicago area, "We have in 
hicago, as in other urban centers," Dr, Dewey said, "the paradox of very 
igh employment together with severe unemployment problems for certain 
roups of youth between the ages of sixteen and twenty-one. We know that 
our out of five of our young people will not be graduated from college, 
his eighty per cent may need practical help in securing work with op- 
ortunity to reach their potential. Participants in the Institute will 
ndeavor to build liaison between companies and their own schools so that 
11 can contribute realistically toward getting these young people into 
hallenging work situations " 

Speakers at the opening seminar on Monday, June 24, will include 
r. George P.. Wood, administrative coordinator, Plans for Progress, 
ashington, D„C. Others are Mr. Ashby Smith, Jr., director, employment 
nd guidance, Chicago Urban League, and Mr. John M. Scanlan, general per- 
onnel supervisor, Employment and Educational Services Department, Illinois 
ell Telephone Company. The meeting will be held in Grover M, Hermann Hall 
n the I IT campus.
